Divorce in progress... Temp hearing in a couple weeks. Spouse and I live paycheck to paycheck. If I get a lawyer then if Temp Order hearing does not go my way, i wont have the money in court to pay for a few weeks. If i do not hire a lawyer, I feel I will loose big time. Cant do both it seems. Not sure what to do.
Maybe it is better not to lose big time now and live to fight another day. Tell counsel your financial limitations to see what they can do for you without bankrupting you.
